Online Safety Advice
The Children’s Commissioner has released a new resource: ‘talking to your child about online sexual harassment: a guide for parents’.
The guide highlights the findings direct from young people – there are two important take-home messages:
• Talk early, talk often – children want an age-appropriate conversation that evolves over time in line with their growing maturity
• Create the culture before the crisis. Children have told us they want their mums and dads (carers) to create a safe, judgement-free space for them to talk about these issues.
The guide offers some practical tips about how to go about this: https://www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/report/talking-to-your-child-about-online-sexual-harassment-a-guidefor-parents/
